of americans hungry, and potentially do some serious damage to our economy. economists have found out that, and projected that every dollar of s.n.a.p. spending generates $1.70 in the local economy and the economic activity in america. this will hurt the revenue of 250,000 grocery stores and supermarkets across the country that accept s.n.a.p. payments. it's a domino effect. once again, house republicans don't care about small businessowners, either. there's a lot of small grocers out there that certainly work with the food stamp program. and you know what? this is a scandal. no, it's not the irs. it's not benghazi. and it's not people losing their health care with these notices that are coming in. this is the scandal. this is the most kicking the least right in the teeth for no reason at all other than unmitigated greed. go back to ted kennedy on the senate floor in 2007. when does the greed stop? i'll answer you tonight. never. they are concerned. these people of faith are concerned about people who make less than $15,000 a year. they're the problem. they're able bodied, they're fat, sit
our economy tilt towards a certain highly privileged class that gets everything while the broad middle class and lower middle class is further and further left behind. this is the first major reversal of that trend. it's not just about kids with pre-existing conditions, it's about reestablishing a different social contract with american families and workers across a broad spectrum that begins to connect different ends of american society. that's why it's so important defining legacy building step for the administration. too bad it's been such a horrible rollout. it really is not just about kids and the poor. it's about the american middle class that's going to continue to see their jobs under stress, continue to see the kinds of things shored up, quality of life they had come undone. i think it's very, very important to remember this isn't just about small segments of american society, even though that was a very passionate and compelling comment from the congressman. >> it's very important i think to lead with children. no, it has great political impact. steve is right. our country no
's what we need to focus on even as he shut down the government, cost the economy $34 billion and had jobs go down the toilet. so you can only marvel at what they call in texas chutzpah. >> back to your point, what is truly marvelous, people are falling for it, the article you pointed out says he looks like -- help me, the actor. >> bill murray. >> apparently reality has left my own brain. bill murray, except bill murray is a satirist, and people get he's been a smarmy see-through guy. it's astonishing the whole world isn't cracking up like we are. >> it's worse than a bad halloween costume. >> it's terrifying -- i'm sorry -- >> where is the divide. as they say in -- cut myself off there. are we saying good-bye to norm? apparently we are. resident scholar, norm, i hate this part of the show. thank you so much for your time. his book is "it's even worse than it looks." >> it's a great halloween gift. >> thank you for your time, norm. >>> coming up starting tomorrow, 47 million americans who receive food stamps will see a dramatic cut to benefits but for republicans $5 billion is not nearly
's father said he talked to his son last week, who complained about the state of the economy. he did not have a job. he's been living in los angeles for about a year. he got his driver's license nine months ago. boat state and local officials say they have no trouble from paul ciancia. they're at a loss to explain why a 23-year-old who apparently didn't fly much would be so angry at the tsa, alex. >> is this going to change tsa policy? it's my understanding the agents are not armed. >> they're not armed. we haven't heard from tsa about that. i doubt that it will. in most airports there are armed tsa. they come in close contact with members of the public. they don't want to have that image of somebody who is scary and potentially a threat. they don't have that kind of training as well. they've obviously been aware of this threat from the beginning. but i heard no discussion that they should change the training or they are considering it. >> lax terminal 3 is still closed. >> correct. >> do we know how long it will be closed for? >> no, we don't. i don't expect it will be closed long.
. the shutdown and the threat to blow up the economy. strong stuff. ron reagan, i want to start with you. this has been a concerted effort. it's like when you read about lincoln coming to washington because the secession movement has begun. they didn't give this guy a honeymoon. they didn't give him nothing. they started going after him from the beginning. >> no. and they haven't learned their lesson. they just got their hat handed to them with their government shutdown and the debt ceiling, but they're going to keep this up. it's an ideological war they're fighting where these tea party members, they think the government is bad. not only do they think that obama's government is bad, any government is bad. so they want government to fail. which is a pretty outrageous thing. imagine when the iraq war was getting underway if democrat who is opposed the war and weren't crazy about george w. bush to begin with began denying troops body armor or denying them armored vehicles or things like that. that's the equivalent to what republicans are doing to the health care bill with not expanding med
the burns. just one pepcid® complete works fast and lasts. >>> it could take until march for the economy to fully recover from the effects of the 16-day government shutdown. in a new "usa today" survey of top economists, 63% say the repeated budget battles over the past few years have hurt the economy some or a lot. one economist says, quote, we're falling down a fiscal flight of stairs and we're bouncing from one step to the next, one crisis to the next. it's been estimated the shutdown cost the u.s. economy $24 billion, but at least taxpayers will get some of that back. the labor department says federal workers who collected unemployment benefits will have to give the money back since they will be getting paid retroactively. >>> let me bring in editor in chief "the economist" john micklethwait. more than half of the economists are less optimistic about growth prospects than they were three months ago. could it take until march to get over the effects we felt from this? >> i think it can. i was one of those people who were skeptical about that and thought it was just a political crisis.
the economy, to do so in a fiscally sound way. if you don't have revenue on the table, we've cut -- it's important to note that going into this debate they say there should be more cuts. there's been $2.4 trillion in deficit reduction. $600 billion of that has been from the expiration of the high-end bush tax cuts. $600 billion. $1.8 trillion have come from cuts. there's hardly any other place to go but nonetheless subject every federal dollar to scrutiny. cut where you can cut if it's d duplicative or whatever. do not say we're going to give tax breaks to the wealthy while it makes seniors may more for medicare as it voucherizes medicare. >> do you think in this process there'll be some flexibility on the sequester? i know there have been some who want to just do away with sequester. senator joe manchin and others are looking at can we have more flexibility. what's your position on that? >> if we have sequester we have to have the flexibility. and what senator manchin is putting forth is a reasonable proposal. but we would rather do away with sequestration. because it just cuts so muc
the u.s. economy is slowing down a bit. the fed announced yesterday it's pressing ahead with its stimulus campaign. includes low interest rates. i guess my micro phone went out. central bank says it will continue helping the economy because of weak signs in the housing and labor markets. on the positive side, u.s. deficit for the 2013 budget year, how about this, falling to $680 billion, that is a five year low. breaking news overnight in sear gentleman. an if i recall with the chemical weapons -- has met the deadline to destroy -- for tomorrow. and this comes as health officials racing this morning to stop a polio outbreak inflicting yet more damage amid the country's civil war. world health organization is confirming ten cases all in children under the age of four. there are 20 additional suspected cases. the outbreak is in two villages close to the border with iraq. hospitals there are in ruins as you might imagine and without power or proper medicine. another likely factor in the outbreaks is the lack of sanitation. health officials say about half of syria's children have bee

that. >> it's killing health benefits, shattering the economy all across the country in all 50 states. >> of course there are death panels. that's just one aspect of this atrocious unaffordable, cumbersome, evil policy of obama's, and that is obama care. >> you know, obama care is really, i think, the worst thing that has happened in this nation since slavery. and in a way it is slavery, in a way. >> sure. anyway, welcome back to "hardball." as you saw in that clip, some of the right have been so blind by their hatred. cruz said it's become like sugar, it's become addictive. they're frayed of it be popular. they also determined that the health care plan won't bankrupt people when they get sick. i want to again with this. it's hard to keep track of all the distortions out there. but let's take a look at some of the most overrepeated charges against the affordable care act. the first is that you'll lose your current coverage. they won't be able to piddle those junk plans that they had before. or they cap your benefits at incredibly low level, and those are gone. those weren't good polic
absolutely no sense, especially since we know that nothing has happened differently with our economy. >> can private charities kick in? i give money to food banks, people give money to food banks. and you should. but no one should be fooled into thinking this can solve the problem. every food bank, soup kitchen, food pantry in america distributes about $5,000 worth of food. so this goes into effect as if all of these charities didn't exist for a year. >> the cuts that happen on friday, automatically that no one is talking about, they're not like a political issue. those are equal to the sum total of privately charity funded food assistance in the entire nation. >> as media matters pointed out, this is the first network show to even discuss 48 million people losing food. and the house cuts on top of this would be eight times what charities distribute in a year. >> then congressman, i want to go to you on that. the republicans proposed a $39 billion cuts to programs a year. what is interesting, it seems like food stamps there was something there was a political consensus around, until recently
of the person you damaged. i mean, cruz is getting it both ways. screw up the economy, kill public confidence, then say there's a lack of confidence and the economy's not growing as it could so i'm going to bring economic growth. >> chris, i think there's some validity to that based on the numbers. that same study you were talking about estimated that job growth was diminished by at least 60,000 jobs a month over the last few months. and that's going to continue on into next year. it's not like it's stopped because government is back in operation. it will be a continuing ripple effect over the next year. and as you point out, this whole scenario could start up again in january and february further zapping consumer confidence. that's 2/3 of the economy is consumer spending. it's one reason why there's a growing angry gulf between tea party republicans such as ted cruz and the business community which has been shut out to some extent that wants its way back in here before things get out of hand. >> you know, i was skeptical, david -- i'll get back to you on this howard. there's cruz out there w
for the economy and that he's been dealt a tough hand. >> let me try it another way. he left us with the clown car. left us with the worst financial disaster since the great depression. he left us sitting on his lap when they left. they've failed on both counts and then this guy comes in and succeeds glowingly on both counts taking down al qaeda from the top on television, okay? and he takes -- he doubles the dow back from the doldrums it was in under w. and not a wimper of well, i'll give him that. i don't like him, but i'll give him that. just a little grumble of, yeah, i like that. nothing. >> no. no. a lot of them hate him and they see political gain in trashing him. and they can't give him any credit whatsoever. and, yes, some of it does have to do with his race, sorry to say. >> some basic human reaction. i'm accused of saying -- i want to say when i'm exactly sure. but sometimes you got to wonder what don't they really, really like about him. thank you for the chuckle and the thoughts of course. and for the point of view and thoughts. very connected, actually. >>> by the way, election day i
government that push our economy and our society forward. a country's national security, any country's national security is more dependent on the strength of its economy, and on the strength of its society than anything else. i think there's for some reason that i don't understand, john, there's been a change from a willingness of the two parties to work together to get things done to today, two parties at each other's throat. >> former cia deputy director mike morrell says the biggest threat he sees to the u.s. is washington dysfunction. that's big from a guy that was with president bush during the 9/11 attacks and citing american greed as our number one problem, outfacing our economy. what do they actually want? francis wilkinson a member of bloomberg editorial board and lays it out in his recent column, i couldn't agree with you more. when you look at governors -- republican governors specifically and getting things done, chris christie, kasic or martinez, you can name a few that are in states that president obama won, but they have high approval ratings and they know what it mean
's going to be about $15 billion of new money infused into kentucky's economy. so this is a win-win situation. >> what do you think about other states that have rejected this? i mean, you must be -- you see what it does for your state. your thoughts on other states that just haven't gone down this road. >> unfortunately, i think a lot of them are making political decisions as opposed to decisions in the best interest of their people. and i would predict to you that over the next two or three years, most of those states will end up doing exactly what we're doing, because their people are going to see what kentuckyians are getting, what people in other states are doing, affordable health coverage and they're going to demand their political leaders do what we're doing. >> now, you have done this with basically three contractors, correct? and this hasn't been a huge expansion of kentucky government. >> oh, not at all. i mean, we brought the private enterprise in to do this with us. we have our own people that already work in the medicaid system, and public health. and those kind of

the kinds of legislation that when they've passed in the past have grown the economy and gotten people back to work. we want to make it easier for employers to keep people employed. we want to make it easier for employers to invest in their businesses, to invest in their employees and to hire people back to work. >> so, stimulus, yes! a stimulus would surely put people back to work and fix this recession. we need a stimulus, so said paul ryan in 2002 when his party controlled the white house. but when president obama thought maybe a stimulus would be a good idea, because we were facing the worst downturn since the great depression, somebody had changed paul ryan's channel. >> we can do better than this. this bill, this economic stimulus package is unworthy of our new president's signature. this is just a long spending wish list from every spending interest group that's out there. if you're going to go out and borrow $825,000 -- >> so, recraft it for me, congressman ryan. >> this is not going to work, and that's the concern. >> this stimulus thing is not going to work. who would ever think t
it in perspective. this is the same team that closed the government for 16 days, that cost the economy, by some economist measures, $24 billion. this was a self-inflicted wound. so they put this pain on the public and then they're causing more pain by not continuing the recovery money, the $5 billion, that is so desperately needed. this past week, i went to two of the centers in the district that i represent, and when you see the faces of the children and the adults, many people are working, but they're on minimum wage. they need this supplement for their families. many of them are looking for jobs. economists tell us, for every job opening, there are three people waiting in line, and one in seven people in america are on food stamps. and to me it's unconscionable that the most prosperous country in history is getting food lines that are going to be longer and longer. and this is on top of, to put it in perspective, the sequestration, which is across the board cuts, and on top of the conference committee now that is looking at a $40 billion cut versus a $4 billion cut. so it's very serious and

has tried to develop a working relationship on issues like terrorism, the global economy and now she is very upset and probably rightly so about the revelations that the u.s. has been tapping her cell phone now as far back as 2002 in the bush administration and the question is whether the president was ever briefed about this. if not, why not? why didn't he end it earlier? but the white house saying the president didn't know about it until recently and they stopped it. they're going to send a delegation here to get to the bottom of it. >> let's talk about what's happening here in washington. not everyone is angry about this. we have republican sasing these countries should be thankful. we heard from peter king earlier on meet the press saying the president should stop apologizing for these wiretaps. >> that's interesting. usually it goes along partisan lines. democrats say this does not fit the obama brand and what obama promised but republicans are saying this is part of national security. and the white house struck an interesting tone too. the president said we're going to try to r

to clarify that my point is a different one. we have ratings agencies also saying that the american economy is undermined by the dysfunction in washington. i'm not calling on the president to be a better leader. i think that is a silly and simplistic notion. i am pointing out the fact that you have a group in congress that have decided they don't care if they hold the country hostage, they don't care if they hold the economy hostage, they don't care if they blow up their own party, they will do whatever they can to undermine the president. >> you also have -- guys, you also have -- >> you're absolutely right that the right has decided whoever is president, whoever is democratic president, that they will obstruct anything they want to do. this is not that obama could play this differently. we have a right that has decided to stop whatever motion that he wants. >> well, it's clear that the right has their own ideological struggles. they're down at a 22% approval rating, the lowest ever in history. but i go back to the fact that the american people are clearly wanting compromise. when the pres
